After serving as a teacher and administrator in the Syracuse City School District for nearly 35 years, Phyllis Moore Holloway hopes the thousands of students she interacted with learned some life lessons, along with the course material. “Education is about empowering one’s self and obtaining the tools and knowledge to persevere,” Holloway said. “Throughout my whole school career, I struggled academically, but it didn’t mean I didn’t like to learn. I just had to read my textbooks ahead of time and very carefully plan my study periods. I stayed the course and persevered.” In addition, in 2016, the NAACP recognized Holloway’s commitment to underserved, community-centric volunteerism, with its Unsung Hero Award. Although retired from her formal role as as educator, Holloway continues to serve the youth in the area as the volunteer Interim Director of the Dunbar Center on the south side of Syracuse.
